    A few years ago I watched the movie: WE WERE SOLDIERS ONCE . . . AND YOUNG for the 1st time. That movie prompted me to start doing a background on those who participated and found out that you were one of several killed during that 4 day battle. That battle being the first major battle of the US Army vs the North Vietnamese Army. But my history with you goes back to your friend, Linda Just.

    Hi Duncan. Your girlfriend Linda Just and fellow classmate from West HS, worked for me at the hardware store I owned in Milwaukee. I know she wrote you about me as well as sharing some things about you with me. I met Linda through my sister Marie and Linda was looking for part time work and I was looking for a part time clerk.

    It wasn't too long after Linda started working with me that she told me of your death. Such a thing was nearly incomprehensible to me as the US was just only recently involved in major conflicts in Vietnam. That is thing were still rather low key about the war at that time still.

    Duke, my heart goes out to Linda for the loss of your friendship and more importantly, I am so sorrowful in my own heart and soul for the loss of your life. I didn't get a chance to meet you, other than through what Linda would share with me and though you were drafted your service is no less honorable than a volunteer. Your service, as was your life was just too darn short.

    It was in that short time not only did you serve with honor and that's all that really counts. That makes you a hero in anybody's book.

    A couple of years ago I went with my son Steve to visit your gravesite. I placed a coin on your tombstone as a sign or affection. I then prayed for your soul.

    Bottom line is this. You are remembered and still loved by those that knew you. I wish I had gotten to meet you. Thank you for your service and rest in peace.

  • Remembering An American Hero

    Dear PFC Duncan Frederick Krueger, sir

    As an American, I would like to thank you for your service and for your sacrifice made on behalf of our wonderful country. The youth of today could gain much by learning of heroes such as yourself, men and women whose courage and heart can never be questioned.

    May God allow you to read this, and may He allow me to someday shake your hand when I get to Heaven to personally thank you. May he also allow my father to find you and shake your hand now to say thank you; for America, and for those who love you.

    With respect, and the best salute a civilian can muster for you, Sir

    Curt Carter
